    I've been sort of seeing this ever since the first images of deluxe TFA Prime came out.

    Heh... now there's a reason to buy both Primes in the Animated line. :)

    Cool. The head actually fits the mold in that colorscheme. Gives him that old-timer feel that describes Kup so well. I'm also curious, what's the head from? I recognize it from something, but, I can't think of what.

    I like it. Looks more Kup than Prime, that's for sure. Look forward to seeing how this turns out.

    Yeah... the head is from Armada Hoist, but trimmed down around the neck (it'll require a little bit of cutting/sanding to get it tapered like that). Based on pictures we've seen of TFA Deluxe Prime, that head should be more or less accurate to the digibash in scale.

    Like a lot of folks, I used to think that the Energon Towline head was the Kup kitbash head, but a little while ago I was looking at Armada Hoist and it practically hit me between the eyes. The name's Kup, lad. Get yer head bolted on straight!

    (yes, sometimes they speak to me... yes, I'm seeing someone about that... ;)  )

    Even the Animated figure's wonky proportions sort of work for Kup. I'm not sure how much Nick Roche's rendition from the IDW Kup Spotlight influenced my decision... probably a lot. :) 

    That Armada Hoist head would make a pretty good BW Dinobot head too, but I think everybody knows that by now.

    Yep, I saw this as Kup from the start as well. In fact, I posted it in another thread just this morning.

    And from that thread, I linked to this thread. And so the circle of life continues. :) 

    There were a few of us who said "Kup" when TFA Deluxe Prime came out, but it was a faint cry... once you do a digibash though, it really cements it. I can't wait for the TFA figures to come out so I can do this.

    Though I hate painting figures, and who knows where I'm going to find the colours for this... so I'm pretty sure it won't look as good as the digibash. :)

    That head, trimmed down, really is perfect for Kup. Good eye! I bet we'll see a few folks borrow your idea and use that head in future Kup 'bashes! :)
